Very disappointed in this pub after reading all the hype in local magazines. There is no proper beer, just Greene King bitter masquerading as Swan bitter and the food was mediocre and expensive. The pub interior is dark and gloomy (presumably by design because it didn't used to be) although the garden area is nice. Won't be returning any time soon.

Now under new management (since January 2014) for umpteenth time since my last comment... Leaning towards food but doesn't seem that busy. 4 handpumps, all sadly with Greene King beer (the previous tenants managed to get the local West Berks beer in). The wine is fine but expensive. I'm afraid I can't really recommend it as it currently stands.

The place appears really to be more of a bistro than a pub -- not exactly uncommon these days. The barmaid ... well, I wouldn't have employed her, let's put it that way. The place really wasn't all that friendly, it has a cold, unwelcoming, clinical feel about it in spite of the nice coal fire. The beer was okay though dull. The regulars seemed to be drinking lager rather than beer -- that tells you a bit either about the regulars, or the beer, or both! With other good pubs not far away I won't be rushing back.

I would totally recommend this pub. We had a fantastic lunch here after a walk with friends. All the food was tasty and of the highest standard. The staff were excellent, efficient and attentive. And the price was great - all in all a wonderful end to a wonderful day.

Went to a function there last night - the ambience was great, the buffet was one of the best I have ever had, my taste-buds didn't know what had hit them - I actually asked the staff about various items on the buffet table and they explained what each item was, then I spoke to the French chef who had been given a free rein to do the buffet of his choice and boy did he excel!

I am a smoker and the smoking outside area was lovely and had heating lamps.

Wish we did not live an hour away as we would go there more often, as I would love to try their restaurant as I have heard the meals are also excellent.

Would I go back? Definitely YES!
